Besta tv bench Verified ReviewerIt was so flimsy. Made out of ooor quality material. Not stable. Kept swaying from side to side. It will collapse. Mike was really nice in sorting the issue but then a polish customer service cancelled my replacement and messed up the order
Soft close draws don't work, can't open, why give that as an optionVerified ReviewerWhen buying it gives you the option of soft close or push open door slides.
Why give an option that does not work?
It can be installed but for this type of cabinet there is no handle, edge or hold you can use to open the drops. So with soft close sliders it's impossible to open the drops...
Seems illogical to allow someone ordering online to pick an option that makes it unusable?
Poor design - not like the pictures, pictures are misleading. Gap between draw and shelvesVerified ReviewerI got the T V unit with draws, though once you have figured out which individual parts to buy (which is not made clear on the ikea website), then when I have started building it there is clearly a design fault to the top to cover the drawer.
When the drawers are closed there is about an inch gap where drawer contents can easily be seen. The shelf needs to deeper (as shown on the picture). This is misleading and an incorrect misreprentation of the product and when I have searched this is an known issue others have flagged with ikea who have not rectified or seem to care to fix. Not at all pleased. Buy this configuration at your peril
Poor designVerified ReviewerI bought the two drawer white stained Oak effect 120x40x64 Besta tv unit. No problem with the unit itself, but when the drawers are closed there is about an inch gap where drawer contents can easily be seen. The shelf needs to de deeper (as shown on the picture of the white one) . This is quite clearly a design fault or the designer identified the wrong top to cover the drawer. Not at all pleased
Poor quality.Verified ReviewerArrived damaged. Replacement parts also arrived damaged. Drillings for fastenings were so rough they had to be cleaned out before the cams would fit. Push-to-open drawers do not always latch. When closed the gap between the shelf front edge and the drawer front is so big the drawer content is easily visible.
Great modern designVerified ReviewerLooks really modern and simple when in white with gloss drawers fronts. Wall mounts securely. Good sized drawers with easy to use adjustment to get it looking perfect. Easy to put together (just make sure you use the correct orientation and holes on the drawer front and it goes together perfectly) and the push to open works smoothly.
Extremely poor qualityVerified ReviewerThe shelves once fitted were not level and are not adjustable. The drawers were also not straight once fitted. They were so wonky they would not close, even once they had been adjusted. I had to drill additional holes and move the runners in order to get it straight enough to even close the drawers. One of the drawer fronts was also delivered with a chip in it.
Poor IkeaVerified ReviewerI assembled this unit as per the provided instructions, which were poor, and upon inserting the drawer units I saw that they are misaligned. The drawers touch at the top and space out at the bottom, I thought I could live with this fault but as it is a focal point in the room it will have to go, shame as I had also bought several packets of screw covers to cover the multitude of unused holes on view
Good TV CabinetVerified ReviewerThis TV cabinet was perfect for the space we had and looked good with a 55” TV on it. Only negative was that when sitting in front of the TV the two securing bracket holes at either end of the area below the top shelf can be viewed and spoil the look. I am sure Ikea can fix this small problem with some type of cover for the hole.
Appalling Draw FitVerified ReviewerI purchased three units the Liatorp units were very good, the Besta unit is poor, the draw fit is so bad that I have removed them as I cannot stand looking at the poor result. I hope that I am able to get extra shelves and change the unit into a bookshelf, then throw the drawers away
